The committee held a hearing last July that identified failures by the Bush administration to properly protect workers from the problem of "wage theft" by adopting weak enforcement strategies and reducing funding and staffing levels of the Wage and Hour Division. This agency is responsible for investigating complaints of wage, hour, and child labor violations. Video provided by U.S. House of Representatives.
